Ask God to fill you with the knowledge of His will

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,

Colossians 1:9 NIV

It is only through the leading of the Holy Spirit that we come to know the will of the Father.  This is only possible as we draw near to the Lord and continue to grow in sensitivity to the Holy Spirit.  As we study God’s word and spend time with the Lord we come to know the depths of the Lord’s heart.  In knowing His heart we come to know His will.

God reveals His will one day at a time.  Many times as human beings we desire to know everything well in advance.  But more than anything the Lord desire to build trust with His children.  It is through building trust that the Lord builds intimacy with us and teaches us to follow Him.  We walk by faith and not by sight.  The only way we can truly come to know the will of God for our lives is by coming to know the depths of His word and it is only the Holy Spirit who leads and guides us into all truth.
